Box Score Bytes - Game 114

- Game 49 of the Great Tracy Experiment (Train Wreck): Record 19-30.   Chatwood throws another good game.  Second consecutive game that the starter earned the victory.  Starter's record is now 8-22 with 19 no decisions and bullpen record of 11-8. 

- Poor EY Jr...a great player with a lot of heart who just doesn't have a position.  Think he can be more than just a pinch hitter if given the chance the problem is there are just sexier players ahead of him.  Since August 6 in LA, he has gotten a start every day usually batting in the lead off position.  In that time he has batted .434 with 3 home runs and 3 stolen bases.  He has a .619 OBP in August and in the games he has played Rox are 8-9.  Not to suggest he is the reason but a firecracker at the top of the line up can sure help the CarGo's of the world...

- With EY Jr hot, would it be wise to just waive Cuddyer?  I know he is hurt but is he really the long term answer for the Rox?  Next year I foresee a lineup of Rosario, Pacheco, Tulo, Rutledge, Colvin, CarGo, Fowler, and Cuddyer.  I think having EY Jr instead of Cuddyer and EY Jr value has a lead off trumps whatever power we lose from Cuddyer...

- First home series win since June 1-3 against the Dodgers
